An .htaccess file is a text file which includes directives that tell a server how to behave in specific cases. It should be put in the folder where these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to perform properly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this type of a file with customized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific sites from accessing your site, set custom made error pages which shall be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the website, redirect a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, set up a password-protected area plus more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have more effective control over your online presence.
